's about the 1968 election. the democratic electorate was split. they were not unified behind their candidate. on the right, southern white democrats who were against civil rights, they were being peeled off to vote for george wallace, the symbol of proud segregation. also, different problem for the democrats. people hated the vietnam war. and the president at the time was a democrat, lyndon b. johnson. so if you were against the war, as most americans at that point were -- this is the gallop polling on the war -- the number of people who thought it was a mistake -- if you were against the war as increasingly everybody was, you were so the psyched to vote for lbj's successor. so the democrats were losing their appeal in the south because of racism, and they were losing the anti-war vote. the republican candidate tried to take advantage of that split, and was this handsome devil. nixon in 1968 was running against a democratic party that he knew was split. he was, in response, pledging to get rid of the draft. and he claimed to have a plan to end the war. he argued that if you w

conservative states, north carolina louisiana alaska. arkansas, up for election in 2014 and this is an effort to protect them, to keep them from having to vote on something that's not popular in their home state. cenk: that's absolutely right. david, how many times have you heard we need to protect conservative democrats by never ever doing anything progressive in the senate, because they need to be protected? >> it's been the standard formula for democratic. democratic strategists might argue that kept us in the senate. at the end of the day, people, we should all be asking what were those election victories for if you're not even willing to put in the underlying bill, a proposal on assault weapons ban that is supported by the majority of the country. if you're not willing to use your political capital why are you being elected to office. cenk: i want to blow your mind a little more. harry reid said today that they might not have 60 votes for federal gun registry. do you know how many -- i'm sorry, just a background check. that would be 92% 92% of americans support it, but they might not hav
't want to view long-term solutions. they have to view short term for elections. with this sequester and families like we see oh "in american winter" it will probably get harder than it is already. >> i was shocked. completely shocked. they came up with a situation which was the worst case worst-case scenario for either side and then they went forward with it. things are so bad for citizens across the country i can't imagine what these cuts are going to do to families. i think there is a disconnect and inability to really look at what's going on. that's what we wanted to provide. we wanted to given a human face to what's going on in a families across the country. we did this in portland, but it's not about portland. it's about any city, any small town, any rural area. you can go anywhere and find families that are exactly like this. this is like garden variety poverty. this is not abject poverty. these families were comfortable many of them were middle class. then they lost their jobs. sometimes their jobs just disappeared. they got rid of all the people in their company and they cou
between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants registering to vote fraudulently. is there any evidence... did they present evidence today that that's a big problem? >> no, not today. in fact, there was more argument on the other side that there is no problem. but what arizona is saying is there is also a problem with the federal law. the federal law doesn't require proof that citizenship. but the way it deals with citizenship as eligibility for registration is it requires the applicant who wants to register to vote to sign under oath that the applicant meets all of the requirements of the federal law. arizona's attorney general thomas horn today told the court that that was an honor roll

a technocratic government. we want elections. they're not being supported. so long as they focus on the plo, the reconciliation is going nowhere. on the israeli side, i'm worried about the decision making loop. you're losing a few people who are known for restraint on this issue, the defense minister, two agents part of the octet. they are gone. now you have a more dovish agent on iran, more hawkish on the palestinian issue, though he is not ideological. if you could convince him that there will be palestinian reciprocity, and they say things like to go states for two people, you'll see that he and his team will also adjust, but without reciprocity, they are not going to. you also have the head of the housing ministry, he used -- we used to have an orthodox person, or the ultraorthodox issue was the main issue. the head of the finance committee of the knesset -- it is a different consolation there that could make this more of an issue. this idea of a freeze beyond the barrier -- there are some people interested -- on the palestinian side, we will not justify the barrier. the college on the

after the israeli government has been sworn in after their elections, so it's very hard to see what exactly could be done on this trip to actually achieve some i kind of resumption of the negotiations. if he were going to try to do that, he would have gone later he would have had the secretary of state go out, try to set things up in that way and come in and try to convene the negotiations. he's chosen not to do that and i think the reason for that is that he doesn't have himself high expectations that resumption of negotiations is achievable at the moment so i think his purpose is manage else which could help further on down the road and that purpose is to reintroduce himself to the israeli public in particular. they have gotten the impression that he doesn't like them, that he wants to distance the united states from israel, his standing in israeli public opinion is at 10 points, believe it or not, a poll taken last friday, and i think that that's a bum rap that he has. he doesn't deserve that. he's been very supportive in

in the election. we, we already forgotten about november? when the republicans ran on the ryan budget. if they want to keep revisiting that, that's their choice. but why are we talking about this? we just find out that medicaid and medicare deliver health care cheaper than anything else? and they want to eviscerate that? it makes utterly no sense at all to me, anyway. >> howard, these seem to be sort of political manifestos, more than fiscal proposals. especially the ryan budget, over 40% of its savings are based on a repeal of obama care. which ain't going to happen any time soon. >> i agree, they are political. they aren't even opening negotiating positions, sometimes people set out markers that are designed to begin negotiations. these are political documents and they're speaking to their own parties. and the democrats have already said, look, you want to run on the ryan budget again, we've got some house races, coming up on 2014. did you that last time, we'll do it again. i think they're largely viewed as political documents, i agree with james. that the economy is poised right no

minister netanyahu, his party did not farewell in the last elections. both men seem to be tied up with a lot of doe mostic affairs. what is the sense with president obama coming over there and he ran the central issue for common israelis these days. >> well, the bond between the united states and israel is still very strong even if the personal chemistry between netanyahu and president obama is not strong and it has been widely reported they don't have a very good working relationship. one of the main reasons for coming not just to israel, but jordan and the west bank right now. that was for the united states to shore up friends. the united states still as a friend of israel. if you look back at the larger regional issues, the chaos around us. the united states is worried about its friends and that israel is surrounded by an increasingly hostile region and egypt is no longer a reliable ally and jordan could face their own internal threats and syria on the border is in a state of chaos and mayhem and iran is also working on its nuclear program and the united states wants to come gi
today. and you were the first, as we said, iraq war vet to be elected to congress. when you hear about these casualties today on the ten-year anniversary, what is your reaction? do you believe that it needs to be more part of the discourse there in the beltway? >> without a doubt. it is not part of the discourse because most folks don't have skin in the game. less than 1% of americans have served in iraq or afghanistan. it goes to your point. we should be talking about this. it is the defining political issue of the last ten years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to t
direction the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know
an election in which they think they got shellacked. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. in the 2019 election. >> eric: your thoughts? >> greg: it's hard to take a rebranding suggestion from someone named reince priebus. it sounds like a disorder you get from a shampoo. it's true! the party doesn't need a makeover. they need a makeunder. the party has been victimized by the media who smeared them as uncool. no way to be a republican and be cool. it's associated also to being old. if you look at mccain, most people thought he was a cranky old guy, when he was a war hero who spent five-and-a-half years in a prison camp. most people didn't know that. they saw a cranky guy trying to beat a young black man for the office of the presidency. they need to simplify and say -- who do you want to be? you want to be an individual. you don't want to be part of the government. strive for achievement. how cool is that? that is what you get out to young people today. ref ject government influence. how simple is that? >> eric: is it smart for the g.o.p. and re
in a big election which is what we are looking at here. these two you will notice are not quarreling over ideas. they are -- it's not their positions on the issues vary widely. these are a position about whether karl rove should be applying his strategic knowledge to the campaign or whether that job should fall to somebody else. and in the end it doesn't really matter because the strategy and tactics of the upcoming campaign, which is still years away will be decided upon by the candidate and that candidate's team. so, you know, this is just sort of after action skirmishing i think. it may last a while. >> bill: isn't there a purity issue in the republican party now where sarah palin and some other very committed serves -- conservatives think that karl rove isn't pure enough to be a republican. he is a kel out. a watered down guy, the rhino thing. republican in name only. isn't that still in play? >> yeah, and that's been a feature of republican party politics for as long as i can remember. there was always this segment of the party for whom no one is conservative enough. there was a -- l

this morning celebrated by many of the cardinals who, of course, elected him to the papacy and also many of the over 80 cardinals who did not take place in the conclave but who are also here today to profess their loyalty and support for the new pope. >> john, is this ceremony typical for most of the ceremonies like that? is there anything different here? >> well, there are a couple of touches that are basically designed to sort of keep things moving so it doesn't take too long. for one thing, some of the traditional prayers in latin have been truncated, shortened and the pope has expressed a desire for some of them to be delivered in greek to describe the universe salt of the church. there are other small elements of the mass that have been eliminated in order to make sure that it's not too sprawling. in general, what we're going to be seeing today is the normal mass, the normal liturgy. the distinctive elements of the inaugural mass come at the beginning, which is the imposition of the pallium, the imposition of the fisherman's ring symbolizing the authority of his office. the pallium
to get maryland to vote for john quincy adams the 1820 four election. >> how about the second question, how involved was she in the politics of the time? >> it has always been murky. there is no clear why between social politicking and the process leading to x number of votes being cast. one of the great skills begin with dolly madison, who understood that more could be achieved out of the committee room, off the floor of the house, in a social setting. louisa catherine is politically and attuned figure. i don't think you would find her dictating a platform. john quincy was 100 years ahead of his time. famously, in his first message to congress, -- remember this is a man whose legitimacy had been questioned. and yet, he introduced this breathtaking program that anticipates the new deal by 100 years. saying the federal government should we in the rowboat and business. there should be a national university and washington. he proposed a national astronomical observatory. a white house of the sky. for this, he was ridiculed by the jeffersonian small government crowd. it did nothing to enh
